    Default GUI to see how many wifis near me?

    Hi,

    I have seen in Windows an application that shows a graph of the wifis it
    can locate. Y axis is strength, X is frequency. It is easy to see what
    channels are in use, and the ssids of the seen networks, each in a separate
    colour, so that an choice of frequencies available for my network is easily
    visible. I don't remember the name of that app, but it is cute.

    Do we have something similar?

    Something like that?

    looks a bit minimalistic but shows channels and strength

    http://software.opensuse.org/package/wifi-radar

    I have what you describe directly in the web interface of my router, I
    also think it would be nice to have the same thing as an application.

    Not too bad, and I see it in your misc repo. It is not what I would like,
    though.

    The program I saw in Windows does a graph like this:

    Code:
    ^
    | signal
    |                             o
    |     *                     o   o
    |   *  *    x              o     o
    |  *    *  x x            o       o
    | *      *    x          o         o
    |*      x *    x        o           o
    +-----------------------------------------> freq

    That one I can not find in any repo.

    Not bad, but I seeked for something like I show in my other post. I
    graphics and color, not text, obviously :-)

    Got an android device with wifi? There are a couple good apps that do
    this that I use on Android.

    As such, I've never needed to look for a Linux-based tool that does the
    same thing myself.

    Looks similar to what I had in mind (from my router)
    http://susepaste.org/46080419

    Give me time till after the weekend it can not be that difficult to plug
    a minimal python script together which gives such a graphical output
    based on the standard tools available.

    Hi
    Download the src tarbal, it's just python/glade, needs to be run as
    root, else add iwlist to the sudoers file;
    Code:
    python iwscanner.py
